I have just added the next seasonal set to the Addition Bundle! This is a set of St. Patrick’s Day Subtraction Games. You can print them out in either color or black & white (or a combination)!
The first (easy) game has subtraction problems with answers of 2, 3 or 4. For example,
- 8-5= or
Print out the game board and cards that you want your child to practice. I suggest that you print them out on card stock. Laminate for durability. (I never bothered to laminate for my kids, but if you are in a classroom setting you may want to.)
Cut out the problem cards.
Shuffle the cards well and place them face down in a pile.
Each player needs a token to move around the game board.
How to play:
Begin the game on the “START” space. The first player picks up a card & solves it. He/she then moves his/her token to the first space with that number. For example, if he/she picked a 9-7= card, then he or she would move to the first available space with a 2 on it. If that space has a lucky coin, then the player gets to go again!
Then, the next player draws a card, solves the problem and moves to the first available space with that number.
The first player to land on the “WIN” space, wins the game!
Sorting Mat Activity:
Have the student shuffle the cards well. Then have them sort the cards onto the space with the correct answer.
There are 2 sets of practice worksheets (2 pages for the “easy” problems and 2 pages for the “challenging” problems).
You can purchase the St. Patrick’s Day Subtraction Game Packet with the link below, though you may want to get the Addition Bundle instead. It includes 8 pdfs (250+ pages) and continues to grow!
